VRFocus reviewed Skyworld when it launched a couple of months ago, giving it a worthy four star rating, saying: “Skyworld is difficult, and these battles aren’t easily won until you’ve significantly improved your forces – that’s if you manage to in the first place. With this inmindSkyworld certainly won’t be for everyone simply due to its difficulty. But for those tacticians after a challenge Skyworld is definitely one of the best RTS style VR titles available.” For further updates on Skyworld, keep reading VRFocus.
